Gifts for Kids, Tweens and Teens
For the kids, an instant indoor fort – Did you build forts in your bedroom or the living room/family room when you were a kid? Instead of pulling all the extra blankets and chairs in, wouldn’t the kids love it if they could just have an instant cave to play in? Well, now they’ve got one. The AirFort attaches to a standard indoor box fan and both inflates and cleans up in seconds. Where were these things when we were kids?
For the creative kids – Build Your Own Theme Park: A Paper Cut-Out Book. How cool is this? Using this book, some scissors and glue, kids can create their very own miniature theme park. At just under $10, this is a great gift or stocking stuffer that’s sure to keep them busy for hours.
For the tweens – make your own magazine. If you know a budding artist or writer, here’s a great way for them to put together their own magazine! Read All About It! has ten themes to start them out, with cute content bubbles to write their own stories.
For tweens, teens, or anyone wanting to bring jewelry on a trip, a jewelry traveling case. This one will accommodate post earrings without them getting into a jumbled mess down in the bottom of a pouch, has separate snap closures for necklaces, and a ring bar. It comes in multiple colors, and zips closed to keep everything secure. Perfect for your favorite traveler, or even someone who just wants to keep their smaller collection organized but tucked away in a drawer.
Gifts for Outdoorsy Friends and Family
For the outdoor enthusiast, a cast iron dutch oven. You really can cook some amazing things while you’re out camping. This pre-seasoned dutch oven has feet on it so you can put it on top of the coals and allow some air circulation, a rim to keep briquettes or coals on top for baking, and a lid lifter to make it easier to get the thing out of the fire and opened up, while keeping you a little further away from the fire. Pair it with a camp cookbook, and you’ve got a winning combination.
For the wine lover who likes to sip in nature, a Hydro Flask wine tumbler. This tumbler insulates the wine, keeping it at a consistent temperature in any weather. No worries about glass not making it to the destination or getting broken out in nature. They’re available in multiple colors and at right around $30, they’re budget friendly.
Gifts for the Indoor Lovers
For the wanna-be green thumbs, a “Please Don’t Die” pot. This is sure to make them smile, and who knows, maybe the good vibes will help the plant that will live in it survive?
Know someone who loves books but is always on the go? Gift an Audible membership. Choose the length of membership that you want to give, and your book-loving friend will enjoy lots of books while on the go. If your book lover has a Kindle and prefers reading over listening, Kindle Unlimited plans are giftable, too!
Hopefully these ideas got you on the way to crossing off some names on your gift list! Stay tuned for more gift ideas to get you going.
